My Soul Finds Rest In God Alone by Matt Searles

I have posted couple of other songs based on Psalm 62 here and here.
The words themselves invite frequent revisitation, and minister afresh each time they are meditated upon.
This version is by Matt Searles.

The lyrics:
1.
My soul finds rest in God alone
Salvation comes from him my rock
My one defence against the foe
He holds me firm no more to fall
How long O men will you attack
And break me down, and crush my soul
Their words are sweet but in their hearts
They feed on lies and curse the Lord
2.
Find rest my soul in God alone
The source of all my joy and hope
My one defence against the foe
He holds me firm no more to fall
The Lord most high sustains my life
A place of peace amidst the waves
O put your trust in God our rock
Pour out your hearts and know his grace
3.
How frail is man, just like a breath
Both rich and poor arise and fall
When wealth may come, preserve your hearts
Don’t set your hope on earthly gold
One thing O Lord you said to me
That you are good and you are strong
You will reward to every man
According to the things we’ve done

My Soul Finds Rest My Soul In God Alone – Sunday Songs

A good song for Reformation Sunday.
Stuart Townsend and Aaron Keyes composed this song based on Psalm 62 a few years back.
They both have renditions on various recordings.
I’ve posted an Aaron Keyes clip below.
The lyrics.

Lyrics
My soul finds rest in God alone,
My Rock and my salvation;
A fortress strong against my foes,
And I will not be shaken.
Though lips may bless and hearts may curse,
And lies like arrows pierce me,
I’ll fix my heart on righteousness,
I’ll look to Him who hears me.

O praise Him, hallelujah,
My Delight and my reward;
Everlasting, never failing,
My Redeemer, my God.

Find rest, my soul, in God alone
Amid the world’s temptations;
When evil seeks to take a hold
I’ll cling to my salvation.
Though riches come and riches go,
Don’t set your heart upon them;
The fields of hope in which I sow
Are harvested in heaven.

I’ll set my gaze on God alone
And trust in Him completely;
With every day pour out my soul
And He will prove His mercy.
Though life is but a fleeting breath,
A sigh too brief to measure,
My King has crushed the curse of death
And I am His forever.
